Anniversaries are special occasions. They are moments for organizations to think about origins, accomplishments, and the future. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS).
ASA would like to welcome the newest group of area editors to the TRAILS editorial team. TRAILS is ASA’s peer-reviewed online library of teaching resources. Area editors provide an essential role by reviewing and providing feedback on the hundreds of submissions received each year.
ASA editors provide data on manuscript decisions in order to provide information on the frequency and timing of editorial decisions, as a means of clarifying authors’ chances of having their manuscripts accepted and the length of time authors can expect to wait for decisions. The table shown below reports on decisions, as of April 1, 2019, for manuscripts submitted in the 2018 calendar year.
The ASA will present the 2019 awards at this year’s Annual Meeting in New York City on August 11. Congratulations to all of our distinguished winners.
